Nice find, Armand!

why is that nice? No effort at terrain, just figs laid out?

Ditto DJ's comment.

I always wonder if games like this are actually interesting to play. Are they?

I like it… maybe a lack of terrain… but still interesting…

Personally I think the game is the thing, not the terrain. So read the write up and don't rush to judgement. Plus, Spanish plains can be pretty featureless!

Lots of room to maneuver. I have no problem with it even if a fictional battle (I haven't read the AAR yet) but I have had plenty of games where the terrain was so thick, you spent all day just trying to come to grips and then it was quitting time.

I said "Good find". First, this is a blog post from a blog that i was not aware of, of a major campaign project set in Spain, run by a pretty big group of gamers in… Tasmania! They are playing games WEEKLY, so the terrain has to be functional and easily taken don and set up. So here, yes, I think the game, and the project is the thing. The pictures could be better, but there sure are a lot of troops on the table, making a good overall impression.

Well said Gonsalvo and Old Peculiar.
